First Phase of Development on The Central Apartments Begins in New Port Richey

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on January 24, 2019

People Places LLC is excited to announce the first phase of development on The Central will begin in February.

Nestled next to Orange Lake and only one block North of Main Street in the historic downtown district of New Port Richey, this series of apartments will provide over 80 luxury residences for those seeking a more urban lifestyle.

Rather than building an “apartment complex” People Places is creating a series of three story “mansion” type buildings that are part of the neighborhood.

“Each building will contain 4 to 6 individual apartments accessed by a single gated entry and stair hall. We are carefully designing the spaces between the buildings as a series of outdoor “rooms” containing amenities for residents and beauty for the whole town to enjoy. Central Avenue, which bisects the site, will get wider sidewalks, street trees and a tree-lined median, all framed with stately new buildings,” explains Frank Starkey, owner of People Places.

Classic Southern Architecture and Easy downtown Access

Architect Eric Brown is designing the buildings with a nod to classic Southern architecture, spacious floor plans, high-ceilings, and high quality interior finishes.

The apartments will be built in two phases, with the first phase located along Central Avenue. Phase 1 will include 42 1- and 2-bedroom apartments in seven buildings. Residents will enjoy a pavilion and outdoor grill in a beautiful Live Oak-canopied courtyard overlooking Orange Lake.

The location is a short walk from downtown nightlife, restaurants and shopping. Leisure activities and events at Sims Park, kayaking and boating, an award winning public library and a $15 million recreation and aquatic center are also within a short walking distance.

People Places is crafting this new place for people who are seeking a more spirited and modern small-town urban lifestyle.
